Paul of Ghost Volta: "The most interesting thing about The Long Dark, for this genre at least, is that there are NO ZOMBIES. Not one single zombie. Not even a semi-zombie, or an irradiated mutant or anything of the sort. The Long Dark is a game about being truly alone at the end of the world, and being faced with no other threat than the constant battle to stay alive. It’s a refreshing break from a cliché that has become so prevalent, not least of which in the survival genre, and it certainly does the game a lot of favours in my book."
